transit use. the biggest consternation is the fact elimination of vehicle lanes is not stopped the constant constant double parking for loading and unloading of commercial vehicles. those of you who know manhattan, much of the area we are talking about is along broadway. there are deliveries anywhere from two in the morning until 2:00 the next morning. the throughput that has been acclaimed by a the new york transit authority. this is a very interesting experiment. the plazas are well used. the bike lanes are much more used. this seems to be more bikers or least they are more apparent. >> i have met with the project's sponsors and spoke with a couple of the d.r. requesters. >> mr. president, i have been informed that the city attorney has obtained the signatures needed for item number five. >> [inaudible] >> second. >> is any public comment >> item 5? >> aye. >> aye. >> aye. >> aye. >> we are now at directors report, directors announcements. >> welcome back from break. i guess the only thing have to do is look could be barred from the summer hiatus. fall is already coming on wi
more than able to be used. so as far as your personal kind of use and the public that is used to getting hard copies, none of that is going to change because i'm sure just by sheer force of inertia and print a number of copies of documents just to have available for people that will ultimately request them and that is perfectly fine. it is the frivolous thing that people getting them that don't request them and we are trying to avoid and if you want to send it to us electronically, we are more than happy to review it online. president miguel: as many of us here will probably remember, when we heard the phrase that computers were going to do away with paper, that's not going to happen. and in some instances i think there's more paper now because of computers perhaps than there was before. and as commissioner sugaya was saying, i have a very, very difficult time comparing sections and comparing alternatives by trying to flip through a document electronically. probably because i came into the field much later in life than my grandchildren did perhaps. so i am not as adept at it,
tiffany. in 2007 when the applicants came forward to have their vision, the principle and conditional use would be for a retail grocery. there were going to be accessry uses like a wine shop and also a catering business like a self service restaurant they also cater out of. what happened is that they went ahead and put stuff on the shelf and in the freezers that one, people did not buy because they just did not participate or it was stuff on the shelf that people did not want so they did not come in and buy it. ultimately they threw a lot of the stuff away. and they adjusted their business model. their big mistake is that they should have came forward and said this is not practical. it is not pragmatic. they should get a new principle use, self service restaurant and wine shop. and something very unique open space in an enclosed area where people can get together. that, to me, is very practical. we are in the year 2010. they are running out of money. there is no more cushion. they put $2.1 million into a building which i thank you for, prior to that it was a complete eye sore. and it is p
mediated by u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton. the major point of contention is the construction of jewish settlements in israeli occupied territories. israel says it will not extend a freeze on building settlements and will resume construction later this month. but the palestinian side insists that it will walk out of the talks if construction is resumed. after the talks u.s. special envoy george mitchell said the two leaders discussed the issue frankly but that no deal has yet been reached. last-minute negotiations will continue among high-ranking officials next week as israel's settlement activities are expected to resume late this month. >>> former pakistani president pervez musharraf says he will form a new party next month in preparation for the national elections scheduled for 2013. >> i am going to declare a party and give my vision for pakistan on the 1st of october. >> musharraf became pakistan's president after taking power in a 1999 coup. he cooperated in the u.s.-led fight against terrorism launched in the wake of the september 11th terrorist attacks. musharraf came
have mixed feelings generally. what i wanted to do is ask if you can help us in an ongoing way for the board by setting up some way of communicating with us by e-mail, letting us know what is going on. i would particularly interested in those professional development opportunities, and some advice for when you think it might be helpful if we are available to show up to show support. i do not think it is appropriate for board farmers to be at all the meetings you have -- all board members to be at all the meetings you have. not only do i want to see how this is working and the potential implications, but also i think it is important for the people working at these schools to understand how important we think this is. if you can in the coming weeks figure out a way to do that, give us some advice. i would appreciate that. >> we would be glad to do that. commissioner yee: thanks for the report. i have been anxious to hear about these for a while now. a couple of things that would be helpful for me -- i would like to get an update of the organizational chart. i know you have given
miguel: thank you. i only have one card on public comment. >> good afternoon. i am on the land use committee and i earlier committed a request for continue continuance on this item and was told i could not do it at the time. this letter is from cfsn and this is mainly because we're thinking that a citywide-type of policy and since it seems to address or mention cac's a number of times and there are many areas and most areas don't have a cac, so we're concerned that the neighborhood input has not been asked for. so this letter goes on to state, dear president miguel and commissioners, the coalition of responsible neighborhoods requests the planning commission for a continuance on this matter because of inadequate kovj and the coalition of neighborhoods and organization have over 40 neighborhood associations and was not contacted for their input. the policies and procedures may be satisfactory but the planning department must make outreach a priority when the board and city wide policy and procedures are considered. we have participated in every important citywide policy and procedur

on the job as far in the u.s.. if those numbers come out greater than expected, that might be bad. and that combined with the level of the market right now, that may be a natural place for people to sell the market. but we'd be buying those dips. ok, are you concerned about the very low volume in the markets today? there is very low volumes in the markets today. that's probably due to all the moy still flowing into bond funds. that's at least the latest data we've seen is just tremendously flowing into bond funds and not coming back into the market. that's why we think if you're in the market now, most people start to get a little more appetite for risk. the bond market is starting to come down now and that money does start flowing into stock funds, you might be in pretty good place. ok, for now it's kind of just wait and see. because we have to see sustained closes above 1120. yes we do, but i think we can possibly get it. the nasdaq on wednesday quells a little above 2300. and that's really a good mark. again, we see a lot good stocks with a really solid fundamentals trading at

"nightly news" begins now. captions paid for by nbc-universal television >>> good evening. if there is a lesson from last night, here it is. the tea party is for real, in case anyone had any doubts. and within the republican party, you could see some veteran politicians adjusting to that idea after watching a few establishment politicians go down to defeat last night. they were primary elections last night in a number of important places and races. the message of voter discontent, and the status quo, loud and clear. while that was last night's result, and november is something else entirely, lots of people awoke to a new political reality today. but there's a lot of that going around, starting in delaware where our own kelly o'donnell starts us off tonight. kelly, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. tonight, democrats and tea party supporters are excited about the same big upset here, each believing it can help their separate causes. while republican officials are trying

and actually pg and e was an original founder that got us started on our efforts. and of the things we work on one is to maintain and to continue to update our neighborhood disaster response plan. we have been developing a plan and our updating it and continuing to revise it. the plan basically out lines how the various organizations within our network will work together and coordinate and consolidate their resources and efforts in the result of a disaster. the plan defines the roles the agencies will play. what roles will the medical facilities play and how the 3 will consolidate the resource. the crisis counseling what the roles are. also important factor obviously is how we can stay in communication in the aftermath. with the assumption in a major earthquake there may be not power or working land lines or cell phone service. one thing we did was to purchase radios for shart range communication and hand radios for our central system to communicate with dem and other organizations. sorry. >> and so, you know, and the plan also identifies potential shelter areas in the local area. also des
of the findings or the appellant. let us back up a little bit and i will address at the comment made by the sergeant. the reason i have asked that we hold over this matter and come back at it is due in part to a situation created by the appellant. when findings are submitted, each side has an opportunity and a right to submit in writing, whether or not they agree with that. it is an imposition on this commission because i cannot follow each and every point and bounced it off of what the findings say. the appellant put me at a serious disadvantage. we do not interrupt someone. if they stick their problem and i get to ask what the problem is, maybe we could have gone at it. but to have done that would have constituted or been tantamount to a rehearing. this is not a rehearing. these are findings. there are some issues raised. i am going to address at least two of them. new material is introduced. i was confused by that. what new material? the new material as stated by the sergeant had to do with the fact that after the march 2010 hearing, when it came before this board, there were new
misconceptions' because we are not doing our part to help change it. if that is true, i want jerry to tell us whether or not he agrees with that assessment. >> do you agree with that? >> jonathan said something that i absolutely agree with. that is the media reflects what the public wants. in my view, the media, in general, feed a voracious appetite for vengeance by an informed public. often influenced by fear, prejudice, and ignorance. i think one of the reasons criminal defense lawyers argued so poorly is people do not understand the source of crime. they want simple, quick responses to a complicated long- term solutions. you cannot fight crime by doing what the governor is doing, cutting social services and building new prisons. [applause] you do not have to be a rocket scientist to understand. all of us who have been involved in the criminal-justice system know where people who commit crimes come from. they are poor people, people of color, victims of abuse, the mentally ill, people with substance abuse problems. there are the people that fall through the cracks of society. but that is th
, they would come and film a show on us. so that was really a great pat on the back. so i think any neighborhood in this city has the ability to turn around and to go forward such as lush lounge has done and we also have a person here in the room that's been of great assistance to us, chris schulman. about three years ago when he was with the office of the mayor in economic development, he came in and began to bring all of the businesses together. he was like a foot soldier. when you run a business, you don't have time to meet the neighbors and get to know everybody so he was a great ambassador of bringing, i believe, our corridor together. with his help and bar owners coming together, we have on our own, i have a special foot patrol on friday and saturday nights, hired out of our pockets to make sure our streets are safe and clean and there's no trouble. finally, i think the commissioners on this board have a lot to do and in common with what i do as we listen to people talk and talk and talk. so whenever you'd like to move on to another job, bring me your resume, i think you'd wor
and doesn't help the u.s. economic recovery. but geithner said he was not prepared to label china a "currency manipulator" under u.s. law. >> tom: that reluctance was all too familiar to members of congress, and they grilled geithner with hostile questions. darren gersh reports. >> reporter: even the senators grilling the treasury secretary today admit hearings on china's overvalued currency have become something of a ritual over the years. it begins with the expression of outrage from senators like new york's charles schumer. >> at a time when the u.s. economy is trying to pick itself up off the ground, china's currency manipulation is like a boot to the throat of our recovery. and this administration refuses to try to take that boot off our neck. >> reporter: then, it's the treasury secretary's turn to share concern, to offer tougher rhetoric, and then to explain that declaring china a currency manipulator under the current law will do little more than require more consultations, as treasury secretary geithner explained today. >> wishing something does not make it so, and issuin
for joining us. i'm megan pringle. >> i'm jamie costello. i'll be in cumberland tomorrow this time. >> what's that all about? >> we are going to be on the c&o canal and show you railroads. when is the last time you were in cumberland? >> it's been a long time. years. >> it's changed. >> pretty. >> the mountain side of maryland. that's what we call t we'll show you all the pretty shots in cumberland tomorrow. >> we'll take a drive out there later on today. >> not now? >> no, because first we have a lot to talk about. a lot of guests. we want to tell you about how to get involved in a great event to benefit the libraries. i think too often we forget how important they were. how much time did you spend as a kid in the library? you might not be -- >> look what i'm doing for a living. not enough. >> they are really important so we are going to talk more about that coming up. >>> swim across america. we are so lucky to have this event in baltimore. michael phelps is going to be out there, raising a lot of money for cancer research. >> we'll hear more about that. and we want to talk about the ani
becoming a little too smart? apple trying to change the way our phones look back at us. we've all seen the videos: i'm dana king. >> good evening. i'm ken bastida. >>> first we've all seen the videos, people using cell phones to record police officers, usually doing something that makes the cops look pretty bad. well, now some officers in the bay area have started wearing their own cameras to record your every move. robert lyles shows us how to spot them. >> reporter: suited up to patrol the streets of oakland once meant a badge and a gun. now officers say it means a recording device as well. >> just for that, so i can record myself when i stop people. >> reporter: motor officer jason scott has been paranoid complaints and lawsuits alleging officer misconduct have increased exponentially in the past decade. usually rooted in a battle of he said she said. >> stop this gentleman for having no plates on his vehicle. >> reporter: but that's about to change. >> this is the new age of policing. >> reporter: you might call it policing 2.0. 15 oakland officers are now wearing on their chests t
neighbors of the gunman and his mother spoke with jackie who join us on the phone. what are you hearing? >> reporter: not exactly the type of thing you would expect to encounter in a situation like this. when the neighbors learned of the name of the suspect and the victim in this shooting, they basically reacted by bursting into tears. they knew mr. davis and his mother who was in her 90s. he was well known in this neighborhood for the exquisite pair they say that he took of his mother who has apparently something very alzheimer's-like. she would wander off. and everyone in the neighborhood respected him very, vy much for the care that he took of his mother. so they are very shocked by this. horrified. th certainly say they don't believe there is anything that would condone doing this. as one neighbor told me, this is the la man in the world i would ever expt to do this. when we get more information, we have interviews with neighbors and things like, that i will bring those to you as soon as possible. >> all right. thank you. >>> tonight we're getting a firsthand account of the terrifyi
. >>> officials with the rta predict it will cost you more to use public transportation next year. the rta says there will nobody major expansion of chicago's transit system for many years. and fare increases will be necessary to keep existing system running. the red line expansion and metro line improvements are on hold. the state owes the rta $300 million this year. so in an agreement to free spare is to years is void unless funding comes through. >>> mayor daley must submit a new city budget plan next month. tonight he will host the last of three public hearings on that budget. the city faces a deficit of more than $600 million. the mayor plans to take suggestions and questions tonight at 7:00 p.m. at the north grand high school gymnasium that's at 4338 west avenue. >>> the bear's say there is one pro-- the mayor's wife say there is one program that will remain. maggie daley celebrating 20 years of her program after school matters. it helps chicago children by teaching them job skills and introducing them to the arts. as for her husband's decision to retire from city hall, maggie daley says
. >> thanks for joining us, thursday. >> hey listen, i'll be in cumberland tomorrow, broadcasting live on our on the go. i have my winter jacket ready. >> me and julia, down by the studio. >> simon and garfunkel. >> i feel like i'm in a barber shop this morning. we're not going to look at extreme chill any time soon. mild morning, thanks to the increasing clouds. small chance of clouds. if anything, mr. costello, you'll knee the waterproof jacket tonight. do you think we'll get a lot of rain out of there in time for you to go out in western maryland. wet weather in the tropics. karl hit mexico, back over the water, strengthening, you've got hurricane igor at 34. currently 56 degrees, your start point on the thermometer and bel air. let's see what's happening on the roads right now. >> well from cumberland to cambridge and from cockeysville to columbia, everything's looking pretty good so far on the roads this morning. we don't have any delays or accidents. just fire activity in glen burnie at baltimore annapolis boulevard and mountain road. you could see fire equipment there blocking the inte
money into the social security trust fund will require us to actually make some tough calls. and since this majority condemned us all the time for running -- spending too much money, then i think a good idea would be to go back to the budget of 2006. i know some are talking about 2008. we go back to that budget and i think that would help us maybe take care of the issue and give us a good start by being able to put all the social security tax money into the social security trust fund. now, the republican is so brilliant he told me we could never do that. i was shocked. why not? because the government would probably buy bonds with it and be the biggest bond holder, we could never allow that to happen. well, not really. we could create a treasury note that's interest-bearing. so it's not risky, it doesn't put the social security trust fund at risk. that money makes interest. and it's there and we stop having a ponzi scheme. a very simple idea. and a republican has proposed it. but when we were in the majority , earlier we didn't go for it, but i hope they will if we get the majority agai
of closing remark stress that i think it's a belief of this whole neighborhood network all of us up here. i hope throughout the day it's driven home that it begins in the community. you can out reach to the organizations and city departments and get the support you need but it come back to the community. i really want you all to leave here today with the tools and strategies you need to go forth and do the right thing in your communities and build strength and power. it's up to all of us to continue to build community and organize. i thank you all for your participation. we will stay here for a bit to answer any other questions people have as they are leaving. thank you all very much. [applause]. i have a news letter and people have things to distribute. >> robert's rules in brief is right here. this is the break outsession on disaster preparedness. many of you were here for the lunchtime speaker talking about the broad more district about how community building before a disaster aides in recovery. and that's a lot of what we are trying to generate through the neighborhood empowerment netw
't ordinarily go around and talk to the neighbor's claim fuhr -- to the neighbors sa. what is before us is not the question whether the citing should go up, what is before us is the issue that access was not formally denied. the question is whether access would be allowed or whether there would be in a pattern of delay or old problems. i think that's the problems are reflected in both parties. i did not see from the permit holders brief any documentation that had an urgent need to provide access. delong e-mails that went back- and-forth, i don't think that there was an intended solution. people need to look at their finances and get final approval. the issue there is to paris culpability. we should require that the siding to be put up. this is a framework for whether there is some level of cost. >> there used to be a commissioner on this board who occasionally would repeat the words of rodney king, why can't we get along? he has since moved on to planning. the children should have been barred from this hearing because they are having to watch adults acting badly. this is a surge. the fa
panelists have said are very useful. >> thank you. >> we heard from our exerts a lot about the successes and the tools and strategies that they use to really engage their communities. a lot of us in the beginning raised our hands and said we were very actively engaged in the community already. it's a good time to talk about the challenges that come up. i'd love to hear from you in the audience what you see as challenges. what you would like to hear our panel give advice to or just hear your concerns and see what we can do to offer you support. anybody have a question? yes. >> i have a question about [inaudible] what techniques do you suggest from revitalizing a neighborhood association and get people become on the positive track [inaudible]. >> okay. i know that the film crew needs us to repeat questions. the question is what do we do about burn out in the community when we have success in engaging people and the energy sort of deplates out, what do we do? >> i can start with that. involving a large section of the community who's interested. we ask for volunteers. and we don't over bu
to folks like us, but it does not play all that well with people who are afraid of crime, people who are out of work. part of the message has to become it seems to me, going back to the sources of crime, not from an economic point of view, if you want to save money, you should do things that effectively will fight crime, as opposed to making you feel tougher and stronger. also, if you can get part of the message out that it is a tragedy when anyone is wrongfully convicted, for that person, for their family and friends, but the other part is, if there are wrongfully convicted, there is somebody out there who is actually the criminal. part of the message has to be financial. we have been told for years people vote with their pocketbooks, so you have to make a financial analysis. i am certain it would save an enormous amount of money. it also have to get people to understand by making the criminal justice system work, you make yourself safer. not just by feeding your ego or feeding your prejudice, let's get them, let's get them. you never know when you are going to be one of them. [appl
until we get more concrete information. the police are telling us right now in fact that they believe they have this man contained, this shooter contained at this point and that would be the good news. helping me out is going to be pat brown, a criminal profiler joining me now on the phone. pat, we appreciate you hopping on here with us. the police came out a short time ago and said, we don't know what this suspect wants, what this suspect was after. we don't know the motive for this. is that first and foremost in the minds of police officers, trying to figure out what this person wants? >> i think what they're mostly looking at is what kind of ammuniti ammunition he has. if it was just a grudge, if the doctor ticked him off, he might have been coming in with a personal weapon. we have those floating around the streets of baltimore and he may have only had one clib in it, which is a good thing, comparing that to a mass murd murderer who comes in with a bag full and he's going to take out everything he can. this doesn't sound like that type of situation. he's not gone after anybody els
're seeing a recovery. none of us are satisfied with the rate of the recovery. none of us are satisfied with the sustained high levels of unemployment. >> reporter: the pain of the slow pace of recovery was made clear today in an annual report by the u.s. census, telling what many americans already now the loss of jobs for the last two years, driven the poverty levels for working age americans to the highest since 1960's. 39.8 million people to 43.6 million meaning one in seven americans are in poverty. >> getting the labor going and economy going, that's the problem for us. >> reporter: since unemployment doesn't fall until about a year, that number is likely to get worse. >> bret: thanks, the s & p gave back about a half point. the nasdaq was up 2. the debate over extending the bush era tax cuts to avoid a tax increase in tough times continues on capitol hill, but it isn't just whether to extend them, but also, how the legislative process would move forward and even what they should be called. correspondent james rosen gets into the specifics. >> house minority leader john boehner s
